Okay, here's my prediction. Sometime in the 21st century, there will be a
period of 10-20 years when computers / robots / AI become an "ethnic group" for
the purposes of joke-making, in much the same way that Polish people / Texans /
pick your group are today. This period will only last for 10-20 years,
though... and after that, I hope that the machine intellects either have a
poor sense of history or a good sense of humor. ;-)
